The Beatles Song of the Day is Two of Us. Two Of Us is on The Beatles Let It Be album and was written by Paul McCartney. Paul has said the song was written about the adventures he and his new wife Linda were having. I have always suspected there was at least some of the song inspired by his friendship with John Lennon. The original title of the song was “On Our Way Home.” One of my favorite album cuts from Let It Be. Great to hear John and Paul singing together like the early years. Paul McCartney: vocal, acoustic guitar: John Lennon: vocal, acoustic guitar: George Harrison; lead guitar: Ringo Starr: drums. Produced by Phil Spector.

Two of us riding nowhere
Spending someone’s
Hard earned pay
Two of us Sunday driving
Not arriving
On our way back home
We’re on our way home
We’re on our way home
We’re going home
Two of us sending postcards
Writing letters
On my wall
You and me burning matches
Lifting latches
On our way back home
We’re on our way home
We’re on our way home
We’re going home
You and I have memories
Longer than the road that stretches out ahead
Two of us wearing raincoats
Standing so low
In the sun
You and me chasing paper
Getting nowhere
On our way back home
We’re on our way home
We’re on our way home
We’re going home
